Rigoletto OperaCamion: Rome opera from back of a lorry

18 June-9 July. For the second year Teatro dell'Opera takes to the streets in Rome and around Lazio with performances from the back of a lorry, this time with Verdi's Rigoletto. The lorry functions as the stage, with a dual setting of the court and of Rigoletto's own private world in a tower. Most of the cast are from the Teatro dell'Opera's own training programme for young singers. The OperaCamion will take opera to the 2016 earthquake areas of Amatrice and Accumoli, to Rieti and to Ponte di Nona Corviale, Labaro and Laurentina in Rome. For exact locations and times see Teatro dell'Opera website.
